Happy Weekend, my Fabulous Followers!

Well, it is official - I went off the rails completely yesterday. I offered to take my friend out for her birthday. I chose four different places for her to choose from where I could stay on track; but she wanted Italian.

I had zero restraint and ate garlic bread and pasta! These are total inflammatory foods so today my joints hurt, my head aches and my belly is bloated! WHEAT is the DEVIL for me

THANK GOODNESS, I am going to the gym and can sweat it out!

Short Range Goals:
* Macros 60%-70% fat, 20-30% protein, 10% carbs - better under 10%!
* Movement down on the Idiot Boxes while retaining muscle by year end 2017
* Bodyfat % reading with trainer in early December
* Drink at least 12 - 16 cups of fresh water daily - especially on gym days
* Continue HIIT mixed in with weight lifting four to five days a week
* Keep up the training notebook to achieve progressive overload

Long Range Goals: 2017-2018
*Bodyfat at 24% or less (Current 29.5%) by May 2018
*Long range body fat goal is 20% - which at my age is great!
*Maintain Idiot Boxes around 156-158lbs staying under goal weight by end of 2018
*Increased strength, endurance and flexibility during workouts

I am dedicated, determined and diligent

Sometimes off the rails is a good thing. It allows you to reset and make a better plan. Plus you come away with a new outlook and you already know what you need to do.

I agree...eating differently from time to time is good...as long as you gain control at the next meal..you already know all of this...so just a matter of sweating it back out..an moving on...

I DO know what I should do...been years of doing it, just lack the discipline right now...not sure why but once that carb monster is released, it is brutal.

I hope you enjoyed your time with her. Sometimes we just have to, but I understand the issue of trying to get back on track.

Yeah, wheat is the devil for me, too. And you're so right...once that carb monster is unleashed, it's hard to chain it back up! I finally got it back in its pen, and have been in ketosis for about 3 days. SO nice to have mental clarity again, and no swollen ankles. You got this, girl!
